Event Description:

The Women's Business Center of Utah is pleased to announce our sixth annual
Exploring Possibilities Conference
The theme for this year's conference is Create Your Own Path!

The conference will be held at the Courtyard by Marriott Cedar City. As one of our platinum sponsors, they will provide the venue for the event. We will enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by their chef following the afternoon sessions.

The event will feature Angie White, co-founder of Beddy’s, as our keynote speaker. "Beddy’s was started by two moms, Betsy Mikesell and Angie White. Betsy was so frustrated by her twins’ inability to make their bunk beds but after trying it herself, she realized that she couldn’t be mad at them when she could hardly make a bunk bed herself. She vented to her friend Angie on their daily jog that there was NO bunk bed bedding and they were so difficult to make. She told Angie "someone should invent that’, and that’s just what she ended up doing.” - excerpt from Beddy’s website

We will also have a speed pitch competition, a networking activity, and the announcement of the Southern Utah Entrepreneur of the Year. We will keep you refreshed with beverages and snacks during the afternoon sessions. You will also have the opportunity to visit and shop our local vendor booths or take a fun photo at our photo booth.

Following dinner, get ready to participate in an exciting opportunity drawing and stand a chance to win one of our six incredible grand prizes! This is your chance to take home fantastic rewards while supporting a great cause. One FREE drawing ticket per participant. Additional tickets for the drawing are available online when you register or in person on the day of the event. 

All proceeds from the conference will go toward WBCUtah training, free business advising, online training courses in our WBCUtah Academy, events, and rural outreach. Our annual conference helps us expand our services to the 14 counties we serve through our southern office.
